Note: The Happy Gluten-Free Vegan has recently done away with all Google ads. Instead we have created beneficial partnerships with upstanding companies that we believe bring value to our readers. Visiting our partners helps keep the Happy Gluten-Free Vegan free for everybody. 🙂

Is the weather warming up where you are? Looking for an easy and yummy vegan drink to help cool you off? Try making our Frosty Mint Julep, Green Smoothie, or Coffee Milkshake!

These vegan drinks for sunny days can be easily whipped up in the blender, so it’s possible to have a luscious and chilly breakfast, snack, or dessert within minutes. A Vitamix works wonders in getting these beverages into their most fantastic texture. But, any blender should produce pretty good results.

The Happy Gluten-Free Vegan is thrilled to partner with No Cow,
